Happy St Valentine’s Day everyone! We started today’s show chatting with coffee guru Justin Metcalf about what is happening globally in the coffee biz. We spoke about climate change, Melbourne being at the forefront of the coffee industry, and whether or not the famous “third wave” of coffee is over. And despite all of our espresso wankery, did you know that 66% of all coffee sold is still instant?

Next we had another chat to John at the market.

Lastly, given it’s St Valentine’s Day, we thought we talk about food and SEX with Madame Brussel’s amazing Miss Pearls. We discussed what to eat on a romantic night, the nightmare that is restaurants on Feb 14, and the film Tampopo. Also Madame Brussel’s tenth anniversary is coming up, look out for the celebration events!
